Summer Camps

Summer CampsUYI understands that when school is out, kids in the inner-city are often left unsupervised and not given the opportunity to have enriching experiences in a safe, supervised environment.  For that reason, UYI offers two affordable opportunities for students to attend camps, one here at The Dream Center and another “sleep-away”.

Summer Jam is a seven-week camp that offers outdoor games, arts and crafts, field trips, and educational and spiritual enrichment.  Summer Jam is open to rising first grade students through rising ninth grade students. First priority is given to students currently enrolled in The Leadership Academy.  Summer Jam runs from June 23 to August 7, 2014.

Summer Jam applications will be available online March 27, 2014. If you have questions, please call 561.832.9220. 

Other kids attend Kids Across America in Missouri.  KAA is a Christian sports camp that serves inner-city youth from all across the country.   KAA provides new and challenging activities in an encouraging environment led by many adults who have come from the same inner-city streets known to youth served by UYI.  Students learn more about themselves, gain a stronger sense of self and deepen their relationships with one another and with God.  Urban Youth Impact is accepting applications for KAA in person. Students from UYI are going to KAA June 7th-15 2014.

If your child is unable to attend the KAA trip we will do our best to find a replacement and refund the camp fee to you, however, this is not guaranteed. 

Why It Matters:
Summer learning loss is a major contributor to the achievement gap between low-income and high-income youth.  
Engaging summer activities that creatively promote continued learning ensure our students will keep their edge going into their new school year.  

Since 2002, UYI has served about 600 students through its summer camp programs. “Summer Jam gave me the opportunity to do something during the summer.  So many of my friends didn’t do anything and ended up in trouble.   Summer Jam kept me occupied with fun and I learned more about God.” ~ Jataria Hudson, past UYI program participant
